CANDIDATES MEETINGS – Congress, Huntington Officials, and Legislature
During last year’s WV legislative session, a change was made to WV Code eliminating the option of voting a straight party ticket in the General Election (§3-6-2 (g)). Please help us get the word out about this important update as we approach the 2016 General Election.
Effective this General Election:
- There is no straight-party ticket voting
- West Virginia voters will no longer be able to vote for all candidates in a political party by making a single mark on the ballot
- Every voter will need to individually select each candidate they wish to vote for
Attached is a flyer that helps explain the changes (in both color and black & white). You can feel free to share this flyer digitally or print for your office. You can also share a link to the version on our website. Or, you may request print copies of the flyer – provided on a first-come, first-served basis – by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, you can let the Secretary of State’s Elections Division know if you have any questions at email@example.com or 304-558-6000.
Thank you so much for all that you do.
